Wade Mountz (a.k.a. 'Mr. Norton')

During a career that spanned more than four decades in health care administration in Louisville , Wade Mountz was recognized by his peers as one of the field's most skilled and forward-thinking executives. When he was elected chairman of the American Hospital Association in 1975, his colleagues deemed him a true health care visionary. He was inducted into Modern Healthcare magazine's Health Care Hall of Fame in March 2008, joining a group of 77 others that includes Benjamin Franklin among its ranks. This became Mountz's second hall of fame selection following his October 2007 induction into the University of Kentucky College of Public Health Hall of Fame. 

Mountz served as chairman of the board for the Kentucky Hospital Association and helped establish the Voluntary Hospitals of America  (now VHA), also serving as the group's first chairman and later as CEO.

Mountz served as personnel director and assistant administrator of the John N. Norton Memorial Infirmary (now Norton Hospital), and later as president or an equivalent position at Norton Hospital, Norton-Children's Hospital and NKC Inc. (now Kosair Children's Hospital). He is affectionately known as "Mr. Norton."

Through his progressive hospital management efforts in Louisville and his leadership roles in local, state and national organizations, Mountz continues to influence the direction of health care in our city, state and nation for decades to come.
